Thx, that's already something but I'd like them to be COMPLETELY gone... hope somebody will take care of that.
Thx so far...!!

BTW: I just realized that I tried to do exactly that (Deleting via FTP) and the items re-appeared after 24h or so... not very useful! And changing the metadata proved impossible because - although I didn't touch it - the system complained about the Item ID being unique and couldn't be changed...

via FTP, you can't delete the folder, but you can delete files that you uploaded and their derivatives.

Exactly what I did... and the files were back 24h later (supposedly restored from a backup). I can try again if you want but I would really prefer if an admin took care of it OR if they added a simple "remove" button...

I'm in a similar situation, I've sent an email asking for an audio item to be removed last week. I deleted the files but the item is still there.. I'd like to know, will the admins take care to delete it sooner or later or I simply have to give up? Just to know.

What happens if you need to remove all of your contributions.. yup every last one? That's the spot I'm in now.

Yeah I just sent my second email to info@archive.org.. the first one several weeks ago, trying to space them out. I was hoping that's how it's done, but with no response I was getting nervous.
